A cool Japanese brasserie in Midtown with original Picasso Plates and a fun vibe...

The Lobster Club, New York

The Lobster Club is the first American restaurant by A-list architect Peter Marino, whose clients include everyone from Chanel to Dior. Every piece of furniture and has been designed and commissioned specially, right down to the original Picasso Plates, the chopsticks, the bar stools. Open only for dinner, the bar scene is beautiful and buzzy, serving high-quality Asian-inspired cocktails (Ponzu Bloody Mary, anyone?) Meanwhile, Michelin-starred chef Tasuku Murakami oversees the playful interpretation of Japanese food in the kitchen. Expect classics like tempura, gyoza, yakitori to teppanyaki – with everything designed to be shared.

OPEN: 5PM – 12AM Monday-Saturday.
INSIDER’S TIP: Order the Okinawa cake for desert (it’s to die for).
SIZE: 150-seat, 4,500-square-foot
